Accelerator Directorate


Accelerator Directorate

Welcome to the SLAC Accelerator Directorate

Our vision is to create an environment that fosters world leading accelerator science and technologies for future accelerators while enabling user research and accelerator R&D programs today.

Our mission is to:


  • Operate the existing accelerators at SLAC, and provide the highest level of performance.
  • Improve the capability of existing accelerators, and support the construction of new ones.
  • Develop enabling technologies for existing and future accelerators.
  • Maintain and develop technology infrastructure to serve SLAC's mission and the DOE complex.
  • Educate the next generation of accelerator scientists and engineers.
